Bonneville Week

When Baz and I had our Visit a few weeks ago he brought along his Friend John Noonan and this is John's Turbo Suzuki street bike; note the lead weights on the swing arm, when it reaches speeds of 225 MPH or more the nose of Standard Fairing pushes down so hard the rear wheel lose traction so he has over 100 lbs of lead on board.

This bike has turned 259 MPH at Bonneville on street tires.The bike makes 550 plus Horse Power at the rear wheel, but depending on the conditions he may take 150 Horse Power out to get traction.
